Knitting Socks from a Tube with Angela & Barbara (In Person Only)

Would you like to learn how to create a finished pair of socks from a pre-knit sock tube? In this class you will take a 64 or 72 stitch circular pre-knit tube of knitting and learn how to mark where to cut into your knitting to put in heels and toes. You will also learn how to knit the cuffs. By the end of this workshop you will feel confident measuring your tube of knitting to create a pair of socks to fit your desired recipient. If you have ever wanted to be a sock knitter but haven’t liked the slog of knitting legs and feet of socks, this is a great way to have a completed pair of socks without having to knit the whole thing.

This class is available for in-person instruction only.

Skills you will learn:

  • Learn how to measure, mark and cut a sock tube. 

  • Learn how to pick up stitches and decrease to create heels and toes.

Skills you already need to have: Basic knitting skills (cast on, bind off, knit & purl, basic increases and decreases), comfort with small-diameter knitting in the round

Materials to bring to class:
  • One fingering weight sock tube cranked  - if you do not already have a previously cranked tube, you will need to bring a 100 g skein of fingering weight yarn (NOT WOUND) to the shop no later than 5/11/24 and pay the $20 cranking service charge (you can also purchase a skein of fingering weight at the shop and leave it to be cranked)
